    sub barely audible

    I just put in a Sound Ordnance BP8T. It turns on. I cannot hear it when my speakers are on, because it is so quiet. I turned off my speakers and could just barely hear bass coming out of the sub.

    I have toyed with all of the knobs. Yes the power and gnd are 8AWG.

    Any ideas?

    Oh man. Need much more info. What HU? Did you set gains properly? Stop just turning knobs. What amp? What volume are you setting gains at?

    Check the speaker wiring. Odds are you have a phasing issue.

    not sure of that sub, but if its a DVC are u properly wired..
    if you are, check the sub with a 9volt battery

    start with one thing at a time..
    check sub..
    then check wire to sub
    check amp.

    yada yada

    Dude you need to hang out for a while longer before you start giving advice as you have no idea what you are talking about.

    The OP bought a loaded sub from Crutchfield like this



    OP - call crutchfield, something is wrong

    Did you buy it from Crutchfield? If so, they have good warranties and help there, part of why you pay so much, so they should take care of you.

    OP - call crutchfield, something is wrong
    actually i know exactly what i am talking about.. however as stated i didnt know the sub.. therefore it was a generalized statement.
    I love it when people who see i have a small post count automatically assume im a noob.
    someday ill post the **** ive done, the magazines im in.. but until then...

    I post a generalized statement and this *** flames me..
    yet on same post there's..

    "Check the speaker wiring. Odds are you have a phasing issue. "
    and
    "Oh man. Need much more info. What HU? Did you set gains properly? Stop just turning knobs. What amp? What volume are you setting gains at? "

    but from the pics, its an amplified enclosure.
    So go flame the guy who said its speaker wiring..
    or the guy who asked what amp..

    or better yet shut the **** up..

    I'd check to make sure your HU outputs are working and the rcas are in good working order.



    Head Unit: Pioneer avh-4300dvd,
    Front Stage: Ascendant Audio 6.75", Massive Audio 28mm tweeters
    Rear Fill: Massive Audio CK6-3 6x9 Woofers
    Amps: PPI Phantom P900.4, Sundown Audio SAZ-2500D
    Sub: RE Audio XXX 12" 2.25^3 Tuned to 32

    They sell Kicker at Wal-Mart now. That's saying a lot..

    Wtf... This has nothing to do with post counts .. You gave a him a completely retarted answer.. If its Dvc 2 check it's wired right blah blah it's a loaded enclosure it shouldn't be opened or tampered with.. Only as maybe a last resort .. So idk what ur gettin at

    Dude, this isn't a flame war. Plus, he gave pretty much no actual information in his initial question. My first post had nothing to do with his post count and thinking he was a noob, but rather that he gave us pretty much nothing to work with, regardless of his status. To be honest, I didn't even look at his post count.

    Yes, in general most people assume noobs to the site are noobs in general. It's a stereotype backed by trend. If you don't want to be labeled a noob, don't act like a noob. Don't get all pissy about nothing.
